Not exactly 'pleasant' sounding but, well,it definitely is music and actually gets better after the first 40 seconds.
I'm maybe not able to appreciate the skills this takes , to make your gameboy play music... never played a gameboy.. but this is really intriguing, and I'll be looking at some other 'game music' now.
Id like to see a real afficianado of this genre put up a review here..
A video of overthruster recording this would have been interesting to see.
Not sure I have the qualifications to judge this genre, but I would think that this rates at least a 4 star rating, I can't imagine a gameboy sounding very much cooler than this. Mostly gameboys' sound annoys me when I hear it live... "Hey,could you turn your sound down"
ok 4 stars based on that I think I might not like this genre very much, but, I intend to keep this track around and play it again,and I've listened to it all the way through twice, which kinda says a lot since it's frankly composed of obnoxious sounds, yet somehow it works.
